Her father's company was on the brink of collapse, and Violette Dennis was forced to marry the wealthy but comatose Elijah Bourne by her stepmother. Everyone was waiting for her to become a young widow and be cast out of the Bourne family. But fate had other plans.
Unexpectedly, Elijah woke up from his vegetative state, only to reveal a sinister and cruel side. He threatened to strangle Violette's unborn child if she ever became pregnant. But Violette was not one to be intimidated.
Four years later, Violette returned to her home country with her genius twins, determined to never let Elijah control her life again. She boldly pointed to Elijah's face on a financial program and warned her babies, "Stay far away from this man, or he'll strangle you."
Under the cover of darkness, her tech-savvy kid hacked into Elijah's computer and left a daring challenge: "Come and try to strangle me, you bastard!"
